What  Does Your Realtor Do for You?
Just  what is a Buyers Agent?
Definition: A real estate agent employed to work in the best interests of a buyer in a real estate transaction. The agent's loyalties are with the buyer. It is the agent's duty to share  any information about the property or sellers that may help the buyer make decisions regarding the transaction. Agent status must be disclosed to all parties.

Tips  on choosing your Realtor:
Find  out if the Realtor is a member of a professional association.  Realtor designates membership in a local board of Realtors, a state association such as the TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS,  and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS. Members are required  to follow a strict code of ethics and are encouraged to pursue  continuing real estate education.

Look  for an agent who shows enthusiasm and a positive attitude toward  your specific home buying needs. That isn't necessarily the  person who talks fastest or longest. As a homebuyer the most  important question you should ask of yourself about choosing  a Realtor is "Can you work with this person?"

Remember  you and the Realtor you choose will become partners while house  hunting. And if you're going to choose a partner it should be  with someone you are comfortable with.

How  can I be sure I'm choosing the REALTOR who's right for me?
